Maps of brotherly tenderness

Digital photographic montages.

Maps of Brotherly Tenderness emerged as one of the responses to the loss of my younger brother who passed away unexpectedly in 2019. In the aftermath, I found I was drawn to the minutiae of the natural world and began to photograph this without any real sense of a project. I eventually saw these images as maps that traced the latticework of history I shared with my brother, and which now moved forward as part of my nervous system alone.They remain open and somewhat ambiguous.
